Are ruining my ardour...oops - my armour!"

  4. GM, this is good! It reminds me of the fellow on "This Old House" today making a protective cover to keep the rose bushes safe from snow clumbs falling from the roof's eves. I don't know why it does??

  12. This is great; I love it! Sir Knight had a wee slip o' the tongue there. Perhaps this romance just wasn't meant to be.

  20. Dear Pat,
    As Shakespeare taught us, the ole slip of the tongue is the start of many a comedy.
